National Rural Health Day
November 15, 2018
The Maryland State
Office of Rural Health (SORH), National Organization of State Offices of Rural
Health (NOSORH) and other state/national rural stakeholders “Celebrate the
Power of Rural” during annual National Rural Health Day on Thursday,
November 15, 2018.
communities are wonderful places to live, work, and visit. They are
also communities where healthcare providers have the opportunity to provide
innovative, affordable, and holistic primary care – a model for the rest of the
country to follow as America transitions to a population, wellness-based system
of health care.
National Rural Health Day as a way to showcase the good work of America’s
60 million rural citizens and promote the efforts of NOSORH, State Offices
of Rural Health and others in addressing those concerns. At the same time,
National Rural Health Day gives us an opportunity to raise awareness of the
unique healthcare issues being faced by rural citizens, particularly healthcare
access and affordability issues.
Events recognizing National Rural Health Day and “Celebrating the Power of Rural”
are being planned throughout the nation. SORH is planning to
mark the occasion by receiving a proclamation from Governor Larry Hogan
declaring November 15, 2018 Maryland Rural Health Day and a webinar to
celebrate this event. While we know a lot of work needs to be done to
improve access to care in our rural communities, SORH would like to take
this opportunity to offer a webinar to highlight some funding opportunities as
well as projects that are happening within some parts of rural Maryland.
